A suspected arsonist has been caught in drone footage released by authorities in Italy’s Calabria region amidst the ongoing wildfires, bringing a different perspective to the blame game of climate change.
Mainstream media outlets have quickly pointed to human-induced climate change as the primary cause of the wildfires. However, this new evidence suggests a different, potentially more sinister, origin.
The drone footage released by the authorities showed a man driving in a motorbike in a densely wooded area. As the drone approaches, the individual is seen throwing rocks in an attempt to destroy the aerial device.
It is still unclear if the suspected arsonist was arrested.

Roberto Occhiuto, the president of the Calabria region, expressed his determination to take strong action against arsonists. He disclosed that 22 such suspects had been apprehended last year through drone surveillance, according to the Independent.
The ongoing wildfires in Italy’s southern region have caused substantial loss of life and property. Sicily, the southern island of Italy, has been particularly hard hit. The regional president confirmed that three elderly individuals lost their lives in the fires. The Italian Fire Department reported that they battled nearly 1,400 fires between Sunday and Tuesday, including 650 in Sicily and 390 in Calabria.
Wildfires are currently devastating several parts of the Mediterranean basin’s coasts and islands. Algeria, Tunisia, Italy, Greece are fighting fires
